    First of all Merry Christmas everyone! So while the kids received anything and everything to do with unicorns this Christmas, i got to replenish and make an inventory of my coins in circulations stocks such as the A-Z 10p, 50p and £2. I'll try and now make hay while i can and use the profits to buy more precious metals... Was quite chuffed to receive a load of the A-Z 10ps, Jemima Puddleduck 50ps and the elusive Northern Ireland Commonwealth £2 coin. They are all getting listed ASAP. Happy to try and help out folk on here who are collecting if I can!

    Silver Breaking Out?

    @HelpingHands exactly - we need to break through the trend line and hold (stay above the line). As you point out, price will often return to the trend line (or horizontal support/ resistance), be rejected by the line and move on up (or down). So what was resistance becomes support (or vice versa). We are a long way from a bullish trend but we have had a couple of days a decent moves and entering what is generally a bullish time for metals. We have seen many false dawns since 2014 since silver entered its trading range. Carry on stacking whilst the opportunity presents.

    Suggestion, although It is simple and boring, but getting a 1oz gold coin of each of the major 'big name' gold coins in your stack. US eagle, Krugerrand, Britannia, Kangaroo, Maple Leaf, Philharmonic Get whatever is the best value at the time +1 to +3% over spot That should keep you busy for a few months at least Then continue with the "whatever is best value" at time of purchase, this may end up you are buying silver 1oz's one month, gold the next, 2 oz coins next month, a fairly price full date run of something else the next This "whatever is best value" has got my a very weird, mixed, varied stack of anything and everything but I know what I bought on the day was good value/best available. Also, point to note from a good few years stacking now, there is no harm in just keeping stacking your fiat debt tokens in the bank until the right "good deal" comes along on eBay/dealer or forum Keeping some fiat spare, landed me x100 (2007) 1oz silver UK Britannias from eBay at £15 each / £1,500 Happy to sit on them for years to come, but they sell in single units hundred of times for £30+ all day long on eBay. I have also had lots of good deals from on the forum from Arshimo2012 and DavePanda who always price keenly and fairly.

    I am working on 3 chests, they have coins, silver items, original flintlock pistol, spyglass, gemstones etc. This is an older photo in the early stages but you can’t see too much of the contents, some silver, a 6oz skeleton hand and the occasional jewel. Fun but time consuming and potentially expensive 🤨

    Howdy all and a very merry Christmas! This pretty incredible 1.2kg Silver statue of a Viking beserker was a Christmas present to us from us, and it is stunning. You did read that right, 1.2 kg - of sterling silver though, not 999. I purchased it from a company called Heads or Tails Coins and Collectables who are based in southeast Asia. You can see all the information about this statue (and many others that they make) on their website: https://hotco.co Here is a video review I did all about this statue. It is simply stunning, literally 100's of hours go into making a statue like this, which is of course reflected in the price - this is ultra high premium artwork that just happens to be made of silver. To that end - I have been talking with HOTCO to arrange a few exclusive discount codes for this, and all of their other products. They have very kindly offered 15% off for using the code BYB15 on the 1.2kg Viking beserker, which you can find here: https://hotco.co/products/the-viking-ship And for 10% off anything else on their website, use the code BYB10 https://hotco.co In aid of being completely transparent I will get a very small kickback from the company for any sales using these discount codes. So purchasing their products helps me as well as them. That said, I would advise extreme caution when considering whether you want to purchase one of these statues. They are ultra high premium and ultra high risk. I have bought one because I love it and I am lucky enough to be able to purchase what I love. As to their investment potential, I believe there is a lot, but by no means guaranteed! You have been warned! Now, one big issue I was always put off by was the potential for a big customs bill when this was delivered to the UK. HOTCO have had a number of UK customers in the past and advised me on using the following HS Tariff No which meant only 5% customs was due. Still a little extra but a dam sight less! The customs tariff code I used: HS Tariff No. 9705000020 From purchase to delivery it was about 2 weeks. I was able to pay with a credit or debit card and the bulk of the delay was due to the time it takes to make the statue! The delivery itself was via DHL express and came within 48 hours (would have been 24 hours but it gets delayed until you pay the 5% customs duty). So, all in all an incredible piece and offering from HOTCO who have done a sublime job in offering great products and customer service. I would highly recommend them and their products to any silver lovers with some high risk cash kicking round! I hope you all have a very happy Boxing Day! Let me know your thoughts here! BYB

    Silver Breaking Out?

    Ideally for a breakout you'd break above the trend line, pullback and then takeoff. The takeoff being the safest place to buy. Otherwise at the moment it just looks like a downward channel to me with the top points of the channel being good places to sell.

    Silver Breaking Out?

    Another push higher. Volumes will be low at this time of year so all moves should be treated with suspicion. It is easy to get overenthusiastic and also easy to remain jaded by the many false dawns. We need to get above and hold £16/oz and then we can say we have really broken out.

    When will gold hit £1000

    Is this a good time to sell gold and buy silver or are we all still fixated on more upside for gold ? All I can almost guarantee is that whatever I decide it will be the wrong decision based on years of experience.

    Westminster are more than qualified in overpricing - IMO they aim for the "occasional" and numismatically challenged, market ! Unfortunately some people are always going to be the "fodder" As for the next release of QB - over to some one else - - ->> there is a thread on here somewhere that points to the "Gazette" where it is /has been listed GO DIGGIN ---- >> if you want - - gawd its deep!!! 🙄😜 im too busy with these 🍺🍻 best of luck @jonrms

    I never needed a licence for that to be honest. But those will come in handy during the next American civil war. I see how well people behave during small natural disasters, or the power going out. Americans will eat each other alive. I dont think anyone can prepare for that. Even if your in a bunker, there isnt much stopping someone from digging it out of the ground. The number one thing you need to prepare is yourself. Your mind and body. With that you can achieve all things.

    They come in rolls? I discovered this (albeit german) shop who gives them out in sacks from the mint 😀 When you buy 200 of them - a small 'master sack'? Could get me into trouble...

    Fake half sovereign?

    No I've never tested any sovereigns. I don't feel it's necessary; If it's the right weight and size then I'm happy so long as it looks right for what it's supposed to be.

    Getting rid of assets to buy silver

    The flip side is you cant take it with you so striking a balance between life experiences and financial security can be tricky. You dont want to be lying on your death bed one day thinking about how many oz's of cold metal you have sitting in a box with nothing else to put a smile on your face.

    This thread will be moved as it is not a transactional thread, it is not an expression of interest - an admin will do this i expect. You have included a good number of website where members buy. You might look at the price comparison site https://gold.de Some join fakebook groups to buy/sell. Uk Silver Stackers is one. Some used to be regulars here but frequent fakebook instead. Dodgy characters are shown the door on the silver forum so it is a safe place to be. i would tend to buy gold in the UK and silver coins in Europe. Backyard Bullion runs a monthly group order which may save you on postage. Buying from the US is problematic with higher shipping costs and VAT at customs. If you are buying in other than GBP i would use a site like transferwise.com or currencyfair.com. Credit card will generally be more expensive. There is CGT on other than UK legal tender for those who might pay CGT. So all European coins are included but how the pirates would know you are selling non-UK coins in private transactions is something of a mystery. The pirates cannot know you are selling coins privately. They can see a deposit would appears in your bank account. When you buy more than £10k in a year with a dealer or more than £5k in a single transaction, the dealer will ask for identification. Transactions may be reported by dealers to HMRC in these circumstances. What they do for sales i don't know but they may hand all those details over. Stackers stack things. They build up stacks. In this case a stack of silver. There are lots of threads where new people and not so new people ask what silver or gold to buy - i think it better you search around for these as they are many views and reasons for those views. The only proper way to learn is to read and read again posts on the forum. There are plenty of people here who are expert is aspects of this fascinating field. i have learnt much of what i know reading opinions posted here.
